I was off today for the 'holiday', so I slept in. I got up with plans to get a ton accomplished. I wanted to get a haircut, buy stuff, visit fun people, go to the gym and various other normal things. Despite all of my plans, not much worked out. I overslept. That wadn't that bad, since I love sleeping. I had to drive clear to Melvindale to pick my phone up that I had left over my mom's friend's house. It is almost 6 and I have not done but one of these things.
I stopped by to see my great-aunt and great-uncle. I brought them some coffee and some random things as gifts. They have grown to expect gifts. It is easily one of the most calm places on the planet to visit. Sure there are little kids a runnin around and a bit of annoying stuff, but they are simply awesome. It sucks that my grandparents are all dead, but they are as close as it gets for me now. Lots of funny stuff was said by all of us. We just sit there and laughed our asses off.
It bothers me so bad that people have placed their faith in Obamer. He is only one person and he has yet to prove any of his claims. Let's at least wait and see what he can do, if anything. What irks me more is that he is not "African American" any more than he is "white". Sure, he looks more "African American" than white. My great-uncle looks more "white" than Cherokee, but he is indeed both equally just like 'bomber'. I am so sick of hearing how he is going to save us from our greedy American way. Americans have spent and borrowed theirselves into this mess and I promise you that he ain't a gonna bring us out.
